Former Left-backed Kerala MP, Joyce George, has caused a controversy following his comments on former Congress president Rahul Gandhi. George says that girls should be careful of Rahul Gandhi as the latter is yet to marry. He made the comments on Tuesday while addressing a rally in support of CPI(M) leader and minister MM Mani.
Joyce George said, “Rahul Gandhi’s programme is such that he will only visit women colleges. He will go there and teach girls to bend. My dear children, please don’t bend and stand in front of him…he is not married.” Mani, present on the stage, was spotted laughing.
